USCIB has officially released our 2014 Policy Advocacy Priorities, outlining our commitments to representing members in a broad range of policy areas and in a wide array of international organizations. USCIB’s policy priorities fall into four cutting-edge categories: growth, jobs and open markets; competitiveness and innovation; business and society; and sustainable development and resource management.
Rob Mulligan, USCIB senior vice president of policy and government affairs, explained that USCIB’s focus is on creating and maintaining a global business climate that considers today’s economic realities. “We strive to promote policies that strengthen our members’ access to global value chains, that take advantage of emerging technologies and new markets, and that reflect business’ responsibility to human rights and the environment,” he said.
Mulligan added: “We are pleased that our policy priorities are in line with the President’s newly-released U.S. trade agenda and the priorities of our affiliate organizations, like the International Chamber of Commerce.”
USCIB is eager to see progress both at home, on issues like Trade Promotion Authority, and abroad, in initiatives such as the UN Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals and the OECD’s Base-Erosion and Profit-Shifting tax project. Members of USCIB’s policy staff are excited to build momentum in these and other areas, in order to maintain American business leadership in the global economy.
